Written and composed by Barrio’s own Javi Jiménez, and recorded with the most prominent big band in the Bay Area, Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, this is Barrio Manouche’s debut collaboration with ONErpm and it has a massive, addicting sound.
Barrio Manouche was streamed in 55 countries and has played over 70 concerts in 2018 alone and is now booked for the Monterey Jazz Festival in 2019 and the Stern Grove Fest Summer 2019.
They regularly sell out venues of over 500 capacity and opened for the renown La Santa Cecilia at the UC Theater, DeVotchka at the Great American Music Hall and La Dame Blanche at the Chapel.
“Barrio Manouche makes magical acoustic music mashed together from all corners of the globe — a new form of Americana, if you will, where flamenco guitar drifts above Brazilian beats, clashing with Gypsy-jazz melodies. It could very well qualify as Americana in another decade or two. Or maybe its rich, gorgeous blend of acoustic Latin-French jazz will always remain distinctly Barrio Manouche.”
